Delph Withdraws from England Squad with Hamstring Injury.

Fabian Delph has withdrawn from the England squad and returned to Everton after failing to recover from a hamstring injury.

The 29-year-old joined up with the Three Lions squad nursing the injury that saw him miss Everton’s 2-1 Premier League win at Southampton on Saturday.

It was hoped that he would recover in time for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo. However, after being assessed by England medical team it was decided that he should return to the Toffees for further treatment.

There are no plans to call up a replacement.

An England statement read: “The midfielder arrived at St. George’s Park with an injury but it was hoped he would be available to play a part in the Three Lions’ forthcoming UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers.

“However, it has now been decided that Delph is unlikely to feature and will return to his club for further rehabilitation.”
